Something nasty just might fall upon us
This is an interesting program. The colonel has integrity. Courageously he shuts down the entire air base to face what becomes not just an encounter with something outside of Earthly existence. Talk about crime scene preservation. He faces deathly organisms from Mars that spell the doom of everyone. Gene Raymond gives a good performance of a man running out of time and making the ultimate sacrifice.
